Jorge Restrepo replied to the topic 'Issue with Polar Alignment' in the forum. 10 months ago

Hello, some nights ago I tried ekos PA routine with the same behavior you experienced. Either a failed third attempt with a wcs error or when I did a solve before PA I got the loop in the first image and the mount never slew.
I am compiling myself as I am on a RPi4. Did you solve your issue?
Thanks

Jorge Restrepo created a new topic ' raspbian build for kstars/ekos/indilib for RPi4' in the forum. 12 months ago

As the ubuntu flavor for the rpi4 is not ready yet I took a shot at compiling kstars/ekos/indilib from source for the rpi4 raspbian OS. It seems that I got it working, at least for my set up.

So this is an 7zip image of my sdcard. It was made with win32DiskImager. You will need a 32GB formated as FAT32.

https://drive.google...ZmAddZpKSN2yDzg

The setup I got working is:
- Skywatcher AZ-GTI wireless mount
- ASI Cameras (294MC Pro and 120MM-s)
- also tried Sony A7iii
- sky safari service

All my test were indoors, is pouring rain and clouds here in Mexico City, so I could not try guiding and the actual plate solve (I tried with a demo image and worked - from the command line). Don't forget to change timezone.

I don't know if other devices will work, but I compiled all the 3rd party drivers that were on the indilib github.

Services to act as a wifi access point are installed:
SSID: ASIAIR_jir (I also have and ASIAIR and don't want to keep changing the setup in my AZ-GTI access point parameter).
pw: 12345678

It's not configured to join a wireless network, when I need to get online I just plugged a network cable. You will have to configure this if you want, but I am afraid you will loose the Access point functionality.

In the OS:
user: pi
pw: xsw21qaz

SSH is enabled, also VNC for remote desktop.

astrometry files: /home/pi/astrometry/data
I only installed the indexes for 14 to 140 arcminutes. The INDI index downloader is not working (it reports an access violation) so you will have to download by hand.

I haven't tested this extensively nor plan to support this build. So you are on your own.

Enjoy,
Jorge
